BEN PACKHAM AND BRENDAN NICHOLSON think TONY Abbott is risking the ire of the nation’s defence establishment by forcing a three-star military commander to answer directly to his immigration minister under a dramatic command and control overhaul to stop asylum boats. Forcing! Have you pair no idea how the system works. The government of the day is empowered to give orders to the ADF who simply obey. It isn’t up for discussion….. the General concerned doesn’t get to discuss it with the media – he just obeys his orders. He isn’t forced but if he does disagree with the order he talks to the Commander ADF, his immediate superior in the chain of command, who may or may not discuss it with the relevant minister who may or may not alter the order. No one is forced to do anything. Bloody Journos UPDATE: The Libs Border policy is available here for download. If you are a rusted on ALP supporter or any other kind of Abbott hater don’t download it – you need to maintain the lie that Abbott doesn’t have any policies.
